Happy New year ketofam!

We start the new year with keto-friendly burritos. I’ve called these breakfast burritos as scrambled eggs are the star ingredient, but you could happily enjoy them for any meal.

I’ve paired the eggs with our homemade tomato salsa (or you can use ready made), sour cream, cheese and avocado, but feel free to get adventurous and add in any of your other favorite burrito components; shredded chicken, jalapeños, hot sauce etc. For the wrapping we used our homemade Keto Tortillas but you can use store-bought if you can find a keto-friendly option.

These low-carb burritos are best served immediately, but you could get the ingredients ready the night before to speed up preparation time.

Ingredients (makes 2 burritos)

  • 2 homemade Keto Tortillas (each 8-inch/ 20 cm)
  • 1/2 cup Quick Tomato Salsa (120 g/ 4.2 oz)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened almond milk (15 ml)
  • pinch sea salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp ghee, butter or olive oil for frying (15 ml)
  • 3 tbsp sour cream (45 ml)
  • 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese (57 g/ 2 oz)
  • 1/2 large avocado, thinly sliced (100 g/ 3.5 oz)

Instructions

  1. Prepare the Keto Tortillas (or use store bought low-carb tortillas, beware of the ingredients used), and the Quick Tomato Salsa Making both from scratch will take an extra hour to prepare but can be made in advance. It then takes less than 15 minutes to assemble. Low-Carb Breakfast Burrito
  2. To scramble the eggs, add to a small bowl and whisk with the almond milk. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Add the oil to a medium-sized fry pan over low to medium heat. Add the eggs and cook, stirring gently and occasionally with a wooden spoon until just cooked.
